RANDOM PHOTOS OF PARIS


 
      Here is the long awaited post of more photos of Paris! (who am I kidding, you're probably fed up from all these photos but I honestly couldn't stop taking them. I was like a little kid who was finally given that candy s/he was eyeballing on the store's window!)

 
      So, here I was, crazy Greek woman with a photo camera and video camera in hand roaming through Paris.


How can I not take a photo of this graphic main street?! On the right there are gardens that used to be the royal gardens!

Most of the houses and neighborhoods looked alike:
 


 





 
But then there were buildings like this one:


The Grand Palais
...and cute little kiosks:


...and...

plenty of touring boat rides

 
How about these public restrooms? (In the middle of the street?) You pay to use it (kinda like a vending machine!). I don't know if you have them in your country but this was new to me! 
 



...as was this, too! I thought it was cool!



I even saw a black crow!



 


 
Well, what about this?!
 
      As I was crossing (yet another) bridge I saw all these little padlocks on the rails of the bridge (both sides)!
 

 


Looking closely, I saw that there was writing on it, such as "Kate + John=LOVE" and that kind of stuff.

And then the mystery was solved! There was a guy selling the padlocks for 3 euros each, had different colored markers to write on ...



... convincing all the lovebirds who walk by to ... 
 
"LOCK LOVE AND THROW THE KEY FOREVER"

 That part of the Seine river must be filled with little keys!!!

Yes, I am a romantic soul but found this too cheesy and a poor attempt to imitate the Fontana Di Trevi fountain in Rome, Italy! (I will admit though, it is a clever business idea! Obviously!!!)




What did you think of the photos?


Don't forget to check out My trip to Paris part 1 and part 2 !
